Arkansas had more than half a million Medicare beneficiaries in 2018, according to a report from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). Here are some CMS statistics on Medicare enrollment in Arkansas:
Private insurance companies must have contracts with Medicare to offer Medicare Advantage plans and Medicare Prescription Drug Plans. Depending on the terms of the contract between the plan and Medicare, not every plan is available statewide or in all service areas. Each year, the plan must renew its contract with Medicare, so the availability of a plan in a specific service area is subject to change.
If you live in Arkansas and you have questions about Medicare, there are resources available that will provide free information about benefits and cost saving programs.
Arkansas Medicare Savings Program: Some beneficiaries struggle to pay for health care costs that Medicare doesn’t cover. Most savings programs in Arkansas help Medicare beneficiaries with limited income. However, even if your income is above the limit, you may still qualify.
Arkansas Senior Health Insurance Information Program (SHIIP): In Arkansas, the Senior Health Insurance Information Program (SHIIP) provides one-on-one counseling and education to Arkansas residents. Their staff answers questions about things like Medicare health coverage, Medicare Supplement insurance plans, Medicare Advantage plans, and other related topics.
